just do it, trust me you will be glad you did, seems to be the best OS thus far, especially if your still on .75, more memory, no typing lag, faster faster faster, so go on, get out of here and download the darn thing and load it already!!!

Where did you get the download? If you got the download from the OS download section on the forums, then that is the latest official OS. That is, Package version .109, but application version .76.

The application version .109 is not official but is a leaked beta. You'll have to google it to find it.

Since you did the official download, then you are running .76 (application side), not .109.

Nope. .109 (application package) has not been officially released. Its a beta download that has been leaked. The latest version is .114. I downloaded it earlier today and loaded it up. So far so good.

If you want to find either of them, just google it and it will pop right up. Download it and install it (at your own risk of course)

cscotty,

I've been on .103 for quite some time now.

I avoided .109 because of all the problems I heard about it AND it won't run my current theme (Grungy Gant).

What are you feelings about going from .103 to .114? Would you do it or would you wait for the next leak? I am being told the next leak should be happening in a couple weeks.

Hey XelhaBB,

If I were you I would stick to .103. From what I've heard, its the most stable beta out there now, and you can probably attest to that. I downloaded and installed .114 last night. I still had the phone issue where I couldnt hear nor be heard, but I figured a way around that.

It seems to be slower when transitioning from portrait to landscape. .103 was much faster in that aspect. As far as memory, I havent noticed any major leaks yet but its only been less than a day.

I really dont have any significant info regarding the upgrade except for what I just mentioned, but if something stands out, I'll let everyone know.

ive had 109 since it got leaked and its been the best of all, i had grungy gant theme on it with no problems and portrait to landscape is fast! its different for some people, but i told him to stay with .109 because ive heard bad things with .114, lag issues, call keyboard issues, and whatever else.. ( just look at the official forums for each OS Version. I would do 109, but i hear 103 is also a stable version. good luck!

i downloaded .109 and it runs my theme Grungy Gant just fine..the portrait to landscape is a little slow at times but not too bad...it was screwing with my rhapsody music and wouldnt play my playlists, so I erased all my files and redownloaded from my Vcast manager and works ok now..

Now a lot of people are crying about .114 issues and running back to .109
